Oodles.press: Reasonable Doubt
We want to change the world by making news that is clear-cut and true.
Oodles.press is a unique project, where every user is allowed to participate in discovering, disclosing, and shaping alternative viewpoints. Each user can debate with others around the world in their own native language. The basic principle, and key concept, of the Oodles.press project is that “something does not emerge from nothing.”
This means that we:
• Will aggregate news from 500 sources around the globe in one place, creating a global news stream in multiple languages
• Will create a structure that allows each reader to find the most significant news relevant to their interests.
• Will provide cyber-journalists, user-reporters, and readers the tools to determine what is real, what should be kept, and what is worthy of attention.
We will allow users to decide what news is worthy of their trust and attention.
In today’s information-age society, our opinions are shaped by the mass media and the information that they present. With so many sources, it can be difficult to keep up and sort out what is real and what is just that outlet’s agenda.
Oodles.press is a powerful and independent tool for reflecting real events. We are not indifferent towards our world. Regardless of where we live on earth, we share the same home. Our team feels a high level of personal responsibility and Oodles.press is our contribution to the well-being of our world.
